I've recently started two topics that seem to have been removed for reasons that have not been forwarded to me nor that I can understand.
Back to the USSR? was questioning if the recent elections in Russia really were fair and free and Confucius or just confused? poked fun at the Confucius peace prize the Chinese recently instituted - and awarded Putin!
So is there some unspoken rule that we must not criticise the Russian and/or Chinese governments on here?
I personally enjoy discussing politics ever so often, and thought these two recent events were worthy of mentioning.
Please enlighten me if there are any board rules that the aforementioned topics violated.
I also think that when a topic is removed, it'd be a good idea to inform whoever started the topic of the reasons for this so that we can mend our ways and not repeatedly break rules we are unaware of.

No, the one on the election had at least two replies, and the Chinese one disappeared more or less immediately I had posted it.
